The UFC has booked a light-heavyweight bout between two top contenders, as the promotion has announced that Daniel Cormier will face Ryan Bader on June 6th.

The five round fight will headline UFC Fight Night 68, which will be hosted by the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

Cormier (15-1) will be looking to get back on track after he was decisioned by champion Jon Jones in January.

Bader (19-4), on the other hand, has won four in a row and is coming off a UD victory over Phil Davis.

Cormier is the UFC’s #3 ranked 205’er and Bader is sitting at #5.

No other bouts for UFC FN 68 were announced.
